A Burnham-On-Sea cul-de-sac whose stunning display of thousands
of Christmas lights often features in the national press burst
into festive colour on Saturday night (December 1st).
chilly temperatures, a large crowd of people turned out to watch
the eight Trinity Close homes switch on their illuminations.
event was marked with festive musical entertainment from Burnham's
Curtain Call School Of Performing Arts.
homes are decorated top to bottom with an estimated 100,000 tiny
lights and the display is open to the public from 4.15pm - 10pm
each night until January 6th.
lights raised over £5,000 for charity last year and this
year's collection will go to three organisations: PETAL - The
Christine Woodberry Memorial Trust, rescue charity BARB and the
Musgrove Hospital Baby Unit.
Nick Gardner told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "It's another impressive
display this year, particularly when you consider the wet and
windy weather we've had over the past few weeks. Everything went
right down to the wire and we were really pushed to finish it
hope to see lots of people over the festive period and raise a
good sum for the three charities."
